August 2, 2016 – Cuban Trogon or Tocororo (Priotelus temnurus)

Endemic to Cuba, these trogons are found throughout much of the country. They feed on fruits, insects, berries, and flowers. Usually seen in pairs, they also sometimes join mixed-species flocks. Breeding from April to July, they lay their eggs in natural cavities in trees, or abandoned woodpecker holes. They are the national bird of Cuba and the colors of their plumage are similar to the Cuban flag’s white, red, and blue.
